Abilis, the nonprofit that serves and supports more than 800 individuals with special needs and their families from birth throughout their lives, is hosting “Home Is Where the Heart Is” — an online community cause appeal — that culminates on April 30 with an online celebration hosted by choreographer, dancer and fitness professional Billy Blanks Jr., and featuring special guests. Home Is Where the Heart Is celebrates a month of activities in the Abilis community and provides an opportunity for the community to support the nonprofit with donations that go toward new initiatives within Abilis that will improve the quality of life for Abilis community members throughout their lifespan.
“All of us at Abilis have been so thankful for the continued support of our organization,” said Amy Montimurro, CEO and president of Abilis. “With the particular challenges during the past two years during the pandemic, we decided to reimagined this year’s annual Gala and created ‘Home Is Where the Heart Is’ to showcase and celebrate our Abilis program participants, their families and the community. We are having fun creating videos of dances and showcasing our very special community. We hope you will join the fun!”
“Home Is Where the Heart Is” features an online celebration hosted by dancer and choreographer Billy Blanks Jr., who will recap the month-long activities and successes with an online program airing April 30th. Billy has created a fun dance for Abilis supporters and program participants, family, friends or anyone in the community who wants to participate.
